I'd opt for something like KTM or BMW who have been building solid adventure bikes for over 2 decades. I'd even take a Multistrada over the Harley.

Again, just my personal opinion.
Think the PamAm engine is new but with the V-rod engine I think Harley has experience with the design.
I thought the triple tree was off a sportster - but thatís just from me feeling the piece.

The cool thing about the PanAm is the suspension that dips to flat feet comfort at stops, so incredible and makes the KTM and normal height BMW GSA out of my comfort height.

1st year definitely a concern but HD certainly didnít rush this bike out, Iím willing to gamble, but until I write a check just talk.
